    After its bleak and confusing opening arc, Dan Jurgens and company are starting to bring Batman Beyond back to its more charming roots. Read Full Review

    Interesting read but it did not wow me as much as the other issues did. Read Full Review

    While this issue of Batman Beyond might not "WOW" you with it's content, it still manages to be entertaining and I appreciate the time that's taken in making sure we all know how Tim's adjusting to being in the future and how to his new role as Batman in both display and maintenance....... not to mention that we actually get to see Tim being smart in this book, which I really thought was lacking previously.  So yeah, not a bad read, but kind of lacking in excitement.

    The issue was a little slower than what I would have liked, but the interesting new direction of the plot and the fantastic art piqued my interest enough for me to continue reading. I'm still anxious, and maybe now, even more so to see what Jurgens can do with Tim and the rest of theBeyondcast and will continue to sing the praises of this book. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brittany Anne Dec 5, 2015

    I would still recommend this book to anyone, because I'm in it for the long haul. As much as the writing is taking a while for us readers, this story has potential. The last couple of issues were extremely action-packed, but lacked dialogue. Now there is dialogue, but the pacing is slow. It'll find it's balance I'm sure, but for now. We shall wait and see. Matt, what are you trying to look for? Read Full Review

    Issue seven shows two relevant stories about Tim Drake and Matt Mcginnis. The first one addresses the Batman suit repairs after it was damaged in the battles with Brother Eye in the last arc. Barbra joins Tim as they unlocks Bruce's old codes to retrieve the necessary data with Drake's deductive skills. Back in the streets of Neo-Gotham, young Matt Mcginnis ventures for answers on the origin of the severed hand of Green Lantern and the ring now in his possession from an illegal weapons dealer. We get a nicely laid out debut of Rewire in the tailor shop as he scolds Matt to leave before he electrocutes the man. Tim prepares to test the Batsuit on top of a skyscraper as Barbra handles the technical support from the Batcave in another subtle tribute to her Oracle days. They manage to get the suit up and running as Drake drops a troubling Jokerz couple in front of a Neo-Gotham police station. We get a brief summery on Barbra's personal life when Tim moves in with her. Next morning, Nora and Batman discover that Matt disappeared as the kid arrives through a garbage truck to the destroyed city of Metropolis. Stephen Thompson fills in for Bernard Chang and he maintains the brilliant rendition of the futuristic architecture, action sequences, and the facial expressions. Marcelo Maiolo keeps the series tone and hue through his vibrant colors.
